    That's a nice machine. They were built to last for ever if they were looked after.

    As far as I could make out the machine has " Trav-A-Dial's " fitted on the table and the cross rail so it has a rudimentary form of positioning. The most important thing is getting all the elements...

    Yeah, I'm sorry but should have known that. It's happened to me in the past but it's a long while ago now and I just forgot. It's amazing what a small raised area will do when everything is such a...

    I would have thought the major advantage of " Rulon/Turcite/Shamban " is it can be applied quite thinly. We always used 1/8" or 3mm thickness but I know you could get much thinner sections. With...

    Does the emergency stop just cut the power allowing the drill to wind down ?

    Sorry, I can't be of much help. I've never worked on one of those. Most shops I worked at that had small surface grinders had the " Jones & Shipman " machines along with the odd " Elliot " machine....

    I don't much like repainted machines either. I much prefer the original paint job even if it's a bit battered.

    I can't say I've worked on many better lathes than a DSG if you're talking about small to medium size toolroom type lathes. You must have some really good makers in the US.

    Yes, there's no getting away from that. It doesn't make for a good nights sleep for a night or so. Time is a great healer though, I only think about the couple of machines that got away from me when...

    That's tough luck. I suppose your only option now is to sell what you can for spare parts and then scrap the rest. The up side is nobody got hurt, that's a big plus in this type of accident.
